    Medical Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I filled out the application form and received a call from the recruiter within a week. We had a very positive discussion and agreed that my qualifications met and exceeded the requirements for the position. Likewise, we discussed mutually favorable logistics for start date, work hours, training schedule, etc. Overall things seemed to go very well and we left off planning to schedule an in-person interview the following week.

    Two weeks have passed and I have heard nothing. I've reached out multiple times via multiple avenues with zero response.

    If they've filled the position with another applicant, that's fine...I'm happy for both parties. However it is unprofessional to leave other applicants hanging without ANY contact, especially when an applicant has reached out for a simple status update multiple times. This makes me question the professionalism of the HR department and frankly I doubt I'll bother to apply for jobs here in the future.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center (Burlington, VT) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by all the physics staff, by the chair of radiology, and by the radiology department's administrative director.

    After being offered the position verbally and by email, 3 days later it was rescinded by HR. Their reason was that I was "too aggressive in negotiating for a higher salary".

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The University of Vermont Medical Center.

    Interview

    I began the process in February with an application for the program, then was asked in March to complete a recorded video interview, I completed this in the beginning of March and didn't hear anything back until July. I was asked to interview on 3 units. The in person interview process is very standard with standard questions (strengths, a time you went above and beyond for a patient, why nursing, why UVM...). I left feeling confident and loving the hospital. I was contacted two days later by the employment office and was offered a job on two of the three units.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position and received a call a week or so later from the supervisor of the clinic. She three short screening questions then asked when I could come in for an interview that week. I came into the clinic a few days later and met with the supervisor of the clinic. First she asked me to tell me a little bit about myself. She followed that question with questions about my past customer service experience, my strength and weakness, why I wanted this position and where I thought I would be in the next five years. Then I was showed around the two clinics and introduce to many of the PSS staff by the operation support specialist and the interview was over. This interview occurred early in the morning and I received a call offering me the position that afternoon.
